Big dog, long legs

When M and P adopted me, they were told I was going to be a medium sized dog of approximately 10 kilos. That turned out to be not quite true. I kept on growing, in height as well as in length. When I stopped growing in height, some parts of me still grew, like my nose. So finally I became a big dog with long legs, long tail and long nose.

I like that. As I told you before, size matters. Especially when you like bumping into other dogs and chasing them on the beach. But sometimes being a big dog is a bit inconvenient. For instance when your humans think a simple pillow is a good place for you to rest.

The pillow is in one of my favorite spots, near the window at the front of the house and near the warm wall. As you can see I am very flexible, so I bend my long legs to fit on this pillow. But it is not very comfortable, so after a while I move to another spot. Gladly, I have several beds in my house. This is one of them, another favorite spot. As you can see, I do fit on this one.

When I was a puppy, this was big enough to share with one of my friends. I don’t do that anymore, of course, I am grown up now. I am not very much for sharing my bed, or my house, or car or…. well, anything, really. M told me that it is a good thing to share your stuff. That may be so for humans, it is certainly not right for dogs.
